Demonologist: ReSeeded

Short Name: 
frog_demo_rework

A full redesign of the Demonologist class, featuring rewritten flavour text, enhanced QoL, some enhanced visuals, and many, many balance and design changes to talents intended to reduce tedium and enhance gameplay diversity while holding true to Demonologist's core gameplay as a heavily-armored melee/caster hybrid.
(Note that this addon requires Ashes of Urh'rok to be both installed and active to work, and will fail to load otherwise.)

Features include:

An entirely new talent tree: Bloodbinding, replacing Combat Techniques and Combat Veteran. Lay down hexing circles to strip foes' strength and restore your stamina, and go for their throats with a deadly gap closer that strikes without fail!

No more tedious sustain management: Osmosis Shield, Rain of Fire, and similar talents have all been reworked so that they only drain your Vim when they directly take effect, preserving their functionality while removing the need to manually toggle them off and on to conserve your limited reserves of Vim!

Enhanced demon seed management: Demon seeds are now automatically replaced when you acquire a new seed of the same type but greater level, and cleaning all the outdated seeds from your inventory is as quick and easy as pushing a button! Seed descriptions are now more verbose, giving a short explanation of what equipped talents actually do!

Rebalanced and redesigned talents: Every single one of Demonologist's unique trees and talents has been given a revamp to improve midfight utility, reduce tedious prebuffing, streamline awkward mechanics, focus their damage output, and provide more sensible scaling that rewards investment in specific aspects of the class! Poor talents have been buffed, broken talents fixed, and centralisation has been moved away from just a few extremely strong skills to a wide array of potential build options, all while preserving the class's core ethos as a spellslinging melee fighter that refuses to die no matter how much punishment it takes!

Massively redesigned demon seeds: Ring seed effects are much more diverse, and all other seeds have been rebalanced as well, with improved or all-new effects on the vast majority of seeds. Demon seed talents have been given the same balance and design pass as those of the core class, giving enhanced functionality while maintaining the same wild variety of diabolical techniques to respin the class's basic gameplay!

And many more! A (mostly) comprehensive list of changes from basegame can be perused in basegame_changes.txt within the .team file.

Truth has many facets, adventurer. Those who walk in darkness can see the light all the more starkly.

Genuine Veteran

Short Name: 
genuine-veteran

A Combat Veteran tree rework, because the base tree isn't very attractive. Full details in the forum thread.

Quick Recovery: Quick Recovery and Fast Metabolism merged. Lifegain scales with CON.
Warrior's Determination: If more than one enemy is visible, take reduced damage, improving as you see more enemies.
Spell Shield: Spell save unchanged. 4-15% Arcane/Fire/Cold/Lightning resist added. When you save against a magical effect, daze the caster for 1-3 turns.
Unending Frenzy: Once a turn when you hit an enemy in melee you gain a 3 turn 0.7%-2.5% combat speed bonus which stacks up to 10 times. Kills restore life/stamina, lifegain scales with CON and occurs once per turn.

This version has seen a complete playthrough main AoA campaign on insane roguelike without major issues, however it's still being tested and subject to change.

This addon overloads the combat techniques tree, and is therefore incompatible with any addon or future versions which change that file.

0.9.5: Tooltips clarified, small numerical adjustments.

Reworked Higher Racials

Short Name: 
sk_higher

Reworks the Higher racial tree.

Gift of the Highborn: For the next 10 turns, heal whenever you use a talent, based on its cost.

Overseer of Nations: Unchanged, except for removing the Sight Radius increase. Tended to make playing just more awkward in regards to autoexplore and range 10 talents.

Born into Magic: Passively convert some of your Willpower into Magic. At higher Talent Levels, increase the effect of Magic on your spellsave.

Highborn's Bloom: Gain increased Max Life, Heal Mod %, and Life Regen. Greatly scales with Willpower.

Stealth Rework

Short Name: 
grayswandir-stealth-rework

Changes how enemies react to stealth.
See the options under gameplay for tweaking.

Short Name:

Reworks the Shield Defence tree for Bulwarks.

Luminosity Celestial rework

Short Name:

This addon joins Negative and Positive energy bars into one, called Luminosity. For details, see http://forums.te4.org/viewtopic.php?f=50&t=43149 .

Mana Surgery

Short Name: 
mana-surgery

This addon attempts to reimagine Spell/Arcane tree to make it "click" together a bit better.
It also changes the mechanics of Aether Permeation prodigy to slightly more powerful and more obvious one.

Call of The Divine

Short Name: 
call-of-the-divine

This addon revamps the Divination tree to make its ease of use match its usefulness.
The tree is now much more focused on Arcane Eyes, providing defense and utility based on them.
Additionally, it modifies Vision runes and Sun infusions.
